Great place to experience film as an art form! I came here to see a black and white Japanese film. Not a gimmicky one that's well-known, but one that people who've studied the field can appreciate. I am looking forward to watching Woody Allen's new film here.

A visit to Brooklyn would not be complete without checking out BAM. This building houses Rose Cinema (the usual blockbusters & less common offerings like Oscar Nominated Animation) and the Opera House (where you can see grand productions like Semele and the American Ballet Theater in the winter). BAM also offers free WiFi.

Went here for their Lady Vengeance movie series and saw a flashback film from the 1970s. Very big building with modern facilities. They run a tight ship here with plenty of ushers and a knowledgeable ticket booth. The theater was of medium size and steep enough that you didn't have to worry about the person in front of you. Very cool experience and I'll definitely be going back.

BAM is one of the few places in the world you will find truly progressive, forward thinking live performances (music, dance, theater, opera) with top-notch productions. If you enjoy the arts and are interested in seeing the future of the performing arts, this is the place to find it. Truly a New York treasure.

Nice artsy theaters. Smallish screens but good movie selection. I wish they had a better fare, but it only has the classic movie candy.

Went to the opera last night and had to pick up tickets at "will call" desk. Very well organized process but overwhelmed with people. People everywhere. Long line took 5 minutes. It's a zoo in the lobby. At intermission had to go to the men's room which turns out to be upstairs. There is a bar/lounge upstairs and again, a zoo. Theater is old and wonderful. BAM Bus back to Manhattan is terrific. Parked right outside. With reservation, just get on and pay and sit down. Goes up Third Avenue making stops at major intersections. Very much enjoyed the experience.
